The Mlinarica riverbeds are located in the valley of the Soča River and are 1 meter wide and 100 meters high. The river Mlinarica flows into the river Soča, almost imperceptibly.The remote high mountain ridge Mlinarica lies between Prisojnik and Razor. The Mlinarica stream feeds with its snowfields.The Mlinarica stream has a large drop, as it is, for example, 300 meters long and 300 meters long. The stream carved out the Mlinarica River. In the lower part of the gorge we find an 8 meter high waterfall, and above it are two semicircular erosion pots or also called draslji. In the inner part, which cannot be explored without equipment, there are even more waterfalls, jumps and pools.The Mlinarica Gorge was declared a natural landmark in 1990. Sports activities in the troughs are not allowed.In ancient times, the parish priest of Trenta was said to have sacred beeches. One day, when he confided them in the care of his priest and he got drunk, a villain snatched the beeches from him or stole them. The villain fled and, at breakneck speed, struck a rock and fainted. Water from the Mlinarica stream then flowed from this cracked rock.Mlinarica troughs access:The Mlinarica Gorge can be reached along the Soča Trail. They are only a 5-minute walk from the Upper Trenta. You can reach this starting point by parking only a few 100 meters behind the sign 49. Srpetina Vršiška cesta. Parking is not in the shade.From the parking lot we go along the path, first over the suspension bridge and there we go along the right path, and after a few minutes we reach the Mlinarica Gorge, or only the entrance to the Gorge, because we can't reach the gorge because the path is closed due to falling rocks.
